Framed Fossil Fish Mural from Wyoming, USA
Astoundingly, this breathtaking stone slab has a "school" of 43 fossil fish. The small Knightia alta is a herring ancestor. Here, they are preserved in a gorgeous, natural arrangement, balanced and with a sense of movement.
These prehistoric fish swam in ancient Eocene lakes in Wyoming, USA, 50 million years ago and were discovered in the famous Green River Formation, known to produce some of the most spectacular vertebrate fossils. Interestingly, larger Diplomystus have even been found with small Knightia preserved in their mouths!
It took hours of painstaking work by a professional fossil preparator to reveal the fine bones of these fossil fish from the stone. Surely, it was worth the effort to bring these ancient fish to life!
The slab of stone measures 48 x 25 x 2.25 inches / 1.22 meters x 63.5 cm x 5.7 cm. Weighs approximately 100 lbs / 45 kg.
The slab is ready to hang flush on a wall with a French cleat system (materials included).
